Best Movie Scores for your Ceremony

A very underrated place to find beautifully composed music for your wedding is in your favorite movie. Composers must convey very specific emotions through their music in films. Think about your favorite movie- the highs and lows of it are accentuated by beautiful melodies or somber tune. There are so many amazing film-scores to select from, but here are a few of our favorites.

Dario Marianelli – “Mrs Darcy” (from Pride and Prejudice)

Mark Knopfler “Once Upon a Time…Storybook Love” (from The Princess Bride)

Craig Armstrong “Buchanan Mansion and Daisy Suite” (from The Great Gatsby)

Dario Marianelli “Liz on Top of the World” (from Pride and Prejudice)

Michael Giacchino “There’s No Place Like Home” (from Lost)

Craig Armstrong “Portuguese Love Theme” (from Love Actually)

Marla and Ricky: A Beautiful Wedding

We had the great pleasure of recently DJing a wedding for Marla and Ricky. The reception was set at the beautiful Avila Golf and Country Club in Tampa, FL. The decor was incredible and the entire wedding had such a joyous feeling. Our favorite part were all of the attendees. They really made this a wedding to remember! Our very own MySelfie Photo Booth was there capturing some incredible moments! In my opinion, some of our best photos to date! It was an amazing day celebrating these two and their love for one another. Congratulations on your happily ever after!

Here are a few candid shots from the evening:
